Question about Panasonic SC-HT500 System
I am not sure if you can change the region of your DVD player, but there is a way around it. You can make your DVD region free by copying them using a certain software. It will remove copy protection and make them region free. You use it on your computer and it runs in the background allowing your normal copy software to copy any DVD reguarless of copy protection. I have been using this for years and it works great. They also have copy software that give you complete control over what is copied, but that is not required, but it does help to amke higher quality copies by removing the previews and such so ther is more room for the movie. I wish I had a better answer, but this will work in removing the region codes so it will play on any DVD player. Here is a link to get that software, you can try it for 21 days free before you but it to see if it is something you like.

The SC-HT500 is only for use in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and a few other places - you will need at least a transformer if you want to try to use it in the US. The manual can be found here:

A power source problem. Means there is voltage measured at the output/speaker cable connections. Indicates a failure of the amp., or faulty power supply to it.
Just re-check all of your connections, especially speakers. And that the power ac power source from the wall is wired correctly and has proper voltage and grounding.

"Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit and sound quality will be negatively affected."
I'd take that to mean you really don't want to redeploy the speakers to other electronics either. Theater in a Box is designed as a package. That proprietary cable connector is a huge clue and disincentive to attaching it to other electronics.
